San Vidal Church
Possibily founded around 1084, under the doge Vitale Falier, San Vidal was dedicated to its patron saint.
Once inside the church, we are immediately stricken by the principal altar painted by Vittore Carpaccio.
Tradition narrates that in the San Vidal church the famous Venetian musician Baldassare Galuppi was buried (died on 17th January in 1785).
